In Box & Other Stuff

Trying to get in the 2009 groove and what can I say – real life has reared it’s ugly head & I literally haven’t talked to you all since 2008!

So first off, Happy and belated 2009! I expect it to be a great year for all of us in dBlogville! After a bit of a slow and cold start – 2009 is officially off and running!

Thought I'd share some of what's come across my inbox as of late.

Your chance to say what you feel! Yes, it's been all over the D.O. C. but I'm posting bout it as well. Here’s our opportunity to tell the FDA how they can help diabetics. Sign the on-line petition to change the FDA’s approval system for Diabetes drugs & devices. Diabetes treatment is expensive and we wait years for the latest and greatest to come on the market. That needs to change. Sign it & pass the link along to everyone you know!

How’d you like to fight the big D, help the Joslin Diabetes Center, save money and look fabulous all at the same time? Damn right you would! Beginning January 14, through January 27th, T.J. Maxx customers will be offered the opportunity to donate a dollar to the High Hopes Fund and Joslin Diabetes Center will reap the benefits. Hold on to your Christmas cash for a few more days and then head to TJMaxx and shop for T1!

So, I’m not doing the whole “I’m dropping 10 lbs resolution.” No, my goal is to exercise more and cook more healthy meals. I found this link to 100 food blogs to inspire healthy eating. – Get inspired!

So have you heard about the Apple computers latest laptop? Check it out!

And finally, laughter lowers blood sugar – seriously, it’s true, I Googled it !

Great to hear from you KK! I am very in touch with real life getting busy as heck all of a sudden!

Naomi -
Right back at you sister!

Scott -
Real life has me spinning as of late - glad you understand!

Glad you got to post. :) I miss it when you don't.
I am hoping to do the exercise thing this year. :) I'm working on it. It doesn't hurt that I got the intro membership to fit4D from the Diabetes Mine contest. It will give me incentive. :P

Thanks girly!
I think the Fit4D was a great prize to win from the D Mine - you have to utilize this opportunity and you must keep Dblogville posted on your progress. Write about your whole experience - D minds want to know!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I didn't do formal resolutions, just some "goals". Exercise each day (even if it's just 15 minutes) and eat a fruit and veggie with every meal (which is something I'm really good at not doing). And I hate to sound like an idiot, but that Apple wheel thing was a fake news site, right? I wasn't sure at first, but by the end it seemed pretty funny!! Thanks for a blood-sugar lowering laugh!

Hi Kelly, thanks for stopping by my blog and offering your support. I couldn't ask for a better attitude from my 4 year old girl than what she is giving. I look forward to getting to know you better!
